“The current Kyiv government, I will say diplomatically, has limited sovereignty.

They themselves are aware of this,” Medinsky said.

Also, the presidential aide added that representatives of Kyiv say that they have "several decision-making centers."

Medinsky said that Moscow understands that one of Kyiv's decision-making centers is "their Western friends."

Earlier, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that Russia today is not opposed to Ukraine, but to NATO.
